The FFA just completed two Career Development Event competitions. In Floriculture, Jana Sankar, Ariel Ramlal, Juno Rodriques, and Christine Narvaez, took 6th place out of thirty teams. Jana was 9th high individual in the state. The ladies were required to identify 120 plants, 90 pieces of equipment, and take three practicums based on floral design, sales, and job interviewing. Only the top 5 teams this year advance to the state finals.

 

Our Nursery Landscape  scored the highest of any school in Orange county with a 16th place finish out of 33 schools. That team was Jana Sankar, Emilia Powell, Darian Lee, and Pat Carmona. This CDE required knowledge of over a 100 plants and equipment, in addition to problem solving practicums.

 

This is National FFA week and teachers received a plant for teacher appreciation. Across the country almost 800,000 FFA members strive for Premier leadership, Personal growth, and Career Success. Thanks for all you do.
